Windows Partition Creator Create Partitions When Disk Management Can’t
As we know, Windows Disk Management provides users with a function to create partitions when there is unallocated or free space on disk, but many of the time it does not allow users to create new partitions, and users have to look for a third party Windows partition creator. Let’s see 2 examples.
Example 1: if there have been 4 primary partitions on a MBR disk, users will be prompted to convert basic disk to dynamic when they are creating partition in unallocated space shrunk from primary partition.
Example 2: if there have been 3 primary partitions and 1 extended partition, users can not create a partition in unallocated space got from primary partition.
Well then, which Windows partition creator should users download when Windows refuses to help them create new partitions? Here, we recommend the read-only partitioning tool MiniTool Partition Wizard. It can help complete partition creation in almost all situations and without bringing any influence on data. More importantly, simple operations are needed.
How to Create New Partitions with MiniTool Partition Wizard
Firstly, launch the Windows partition creator to get its main interface listed below:
Now we can see 3 primary partitions and 1 logical partition. Next, let’s shrink partition F (a primary partition) to make new partitions. Select partition F and click on "Move/Resize Partition" to get the image below:
Then, drag one of triangles on edges of the handle to shrink partition and click "OK" to go back to the main interface:
Now we can see space shrunk from partition F becomes logical while Windows Disk Management can only make it primary. At this time, we can select the unallocated space and click on "Create Partition" to create new partitions.
Here, set properties for the new partition and click on "OK" to go back to the main interface:
Now a new partition namely partition H is generated, and at this time we just need to click on "Apply" button to apply all changes. After that, creating partition is done.
The demonstration above just shows how to solve the problem mentioned in example 2, and the Windows partition creator MiniTool Partition Wizard can also solve the problem introduced in example 1. Just set one of primary partitions as logical (except boot partition) and then resolve the problem according to the solution for example 2.
